    I have been working at Cisco Systems full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Challenging and fulfilling work
    Competitive compensation
    Great benefits - gym, daycare, on-site health center, excellent coverage for fertility treatment & adoption, and many incentitives to stay fit and give back
    Flexible schedule with work from home and other locations option

    Cons

    Can be long hours if you don't self-manage your time
    Not as much investment in outside professional development as I'd like

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stay competitive with compensation... especially with top performers who should be a 1.0 or above comp ratio! Invest more in professional development for people... even make it mandatory to ensure development is taken seriously.

    Current Employee - Systems Engineer in New York, NY

    I have been working at Cisco Systems full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Good pay. Some good people left.

    Cons

    Bad management. The beatings will continue until morale improves. Micromanagement. Paranoid managers (who know there are too many of them) who need to convince their superfluous manager that their direct reports couldn't get to the bathroom without assistance. Would be funny if not living it.
    Been at Cisco a long time and it used to be engineering driven. Now - engineers are abused and dared to find a new job.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Grow a pair and provide real advice up the line rather than sycophantism.
